Practice: While the clubs "perferred" practice schedule is boys on Monday/Wednesdays and girls on Tuesday/Thursday, it is up to the coach to set the team's schedule for each season.
Tournaments: The Club provides the coaches with options to choose one tournament each season. These tournaments can sometimes require travel, or staying in a hotel with the team for a weekend.
Fundraising: The Club requires that each team participates in one Club fundraiser each year, if offered. Teams can choose to do as many fundraisers as they like to help cover the costs of any extra tournaments, hotel fees, additional trainings, team gear, after season celebrations, etc.
League/Travel: Gunners FC has teams in two different leagues, MVYSA and BPYSL. Teams will start their journey in MVYSA, typically playing other local teams in the Dayton area, occasionally having to travel as far as 45 minutes-1hr away. Once teams gain promotion into BPYSL, they will be playing teams more from Cincinnati and Columbus areas and having to travel as such.
Additional Costs: Outside of Club fees families are required to purchase their own uniform kit. The kits are in cycle for (2) years.
